Just wondering who likes or dislikes the rear pimple & who is going to go for the US spec rear diffuser?

If you do, what alternative fog lamp will you go for (if at all)?

I only ask as i'm not keen on it & if i were buying i would lose it. :yep:

I can see a few people damaging it when parking.

Personally I don't like it, way too low to be effective in my personal opinion.

Where is it on th ST? I have never looked
Fog lights are supposed to be low are they not, so they go under the fog? The current FL Mk3 ST has one fog light which is mounted on the offside corner of the rear bumper. It has a matching reflector on the other side but without the fog light.

I don't mind it, at least in is in the centre of the car and not a big red light on one side that looks odd.
This. I hate that they went from one on each side, in the rear cluster, on the PFL Mk3 ST to just one on the FL. I've been looking into mounting one on the other side but not had much time to fiddle with it.

They don't have to be low, the rear one is brighter so people can see you from behind. Unless you drive backwards everywhere.

Just annoying things, esp when people put them on in rain, not very heavy fog, built up area & dont switch them off or Saxo / Fez etc, etc driver who think it's cool to have front ones on ALL the time!! :mad:

Never used fog lamps in 25 years of driving! :nope:

+1 :yep: I did actually switch mine on the other day (after a clean) purely to make sure they all still worked... :whistle: :laughing:

I'm fairly indifferent on the one on the Mk3 RS, though will agree it does look like a bit of an afterthought and could have been made to look much better. I've just had visions of the 'pimple' being stuck on the back of the Mk2; it's wrong, just wrong! :facepalm: :smile:
